place to come swimming if you are getting into the water you probably want to get in up to your knees. they don't want people to get in much more than that because there are dangerous and strong rip currents here at ocean beach mostly because of the shape of the beach. despite the warning signs people do get into the water there were at least a dozen rescues at ocean beach encoding this one captured by our cameras yesterday. a father and son out for a swim and they got into some real trouble in the water. specialists raced into help them and put them back to shore they used a jet ski at one point rescuers eventually brought the father and son back to the beach they were okay, the boy's mother had been watching this unfold from the beach.>> i played it play-by-play i saw the riptide they started to drift and i started to get up

ocean beach had huge crowds over the weekend. >> reporter: yes, you don't have to look any further than this trash pile. a huge mess left behind obviously the trash cans were full so people just put this trash next to the trash cans but it gives you a sense of how many people were down here yesterday. a big cleanup for folks at ocean beach you can bet it will be a similar scene later on today. >> alex savidge, thank you. there are 19 large wildfires across the state. >> more than 12,000 firefighters are battling fires statewide, so far cal fire has responded to 4600 fires. that is 1000 more compared to this time last year. in la county they are getting more control over a wildfire that destroyed three homes and damaged another, it is 30% contained known as the la tuna

people could be decided tomorrow when president trump makes an announcement on the daca program. >> the deferred action for childhood arrivals program protects people who came to the us illegally as children. allie rasmus in the newsroom tell us why there is so much fear and uncertainty about the future of the program. >> there are 800,000 undocumented interments -- immigrants in this program. the immigrants in the program are referred to as dreamers most were brought to the us illegally by the parents as young children. now they could find themselves deported to the countries they left as kids or infants countries they don't know because president trump is expected to make an announcement about the fate of the program tomorrow. he is leaning toward cutting the obama era program but officials are telling several media outlets the president will into the program after a six-month delay, the idea is to put pressure on congress to come up with their own plan to
save the program or come up with other solutions. in exchange for registering with the program and meeting certain qualifications the people enrolled are protected from deportation they can work and pay taxes but if the protection goes away recipients could easily be identified by the government and kicked out of the only country that have ever known. >> real people are out to there they have lived here. americans will be deported. >> diane feinstein points out that california has more people enrolled in this program than any other state, silicon valley leaders are expressing support the apple ceo tim cook tweets 250 of my apple coworkers are dreamers i stand with them, they deserve our respect. a growing number of lawmakers in congress are calling on president trump to spare the program including paul ryan but
there is strong opposition as well. the attorney general's of at least 10 states have threatened to sue the federal government if it is not eliminate the program. jeff sessions and his former aides are reportedly staunchly against the program so we will have to wait and see what the president decides. one week after hurricane harvey slammed into the texas coast many people estimate it will be the most expensive natural disaster in us history. greg abbott expects costs could be between 150 and $180 billion for rebuilding governor greg abbott says the damage is comparable to hurricane katrina. he expects the recovery will require more funding than katrina. congress is being called on to combine a disaster relief package with an increase in the
debt ceiling, lawmakers have been sent a request for a $7.9 billion down payment toward rb relief. the president will meet with congressional leaders this week as lawmakers return to washington tomorrow. >> the president and i believe it should be tied to the harvey funding that our first priority is to make sure the state gets money it is critical and to do that we must raise the debt limit. if congress appropriates the money but i don't have the ability to borrow more money we can't get the money to the state. we need to put politics aside and we will urge congress to get both of those things done as quickly as possible. >> some conservatives say pairing the relief package with an increase in the debt limit will send the wrong message to government spending. once again defending the
decision against opening his houston mega-church right away after hurricane harvey it texas. >> somehow a false narrative caught on people who don't like us but the bottom line we are where we are i feel like we made the right decision if somebody was in my shoes they would have made the same decision. >> joel osteen was criticized for closing his 17,000 seat church during the hurricane instead of taking in storm victims. he later reopened the church after earlier posting on social media the church was inaccessible due to severe flooding. yesterday he talked about the controversy during his church service on sunday by saying he wanted to make sure the church building was safe for taking people in. >> donations are coming in for hurricane harvey jj watt's crowdfunding site is at nearly $19 million. tj watt place for the houston
texans, he and his teammates gathered in front of their stadium yesterday passing out relief supplies, 10 truckloads of food bottled water and other necessities were distributed >> we started out with the goal of $200,000 last week. our team could not make it back we were in new orleans. everybody here was watching on tv and some guys have families stuck in a situation some guys were evacuated from their homes. >> find a link to his fund and other funds by going to ktvu.com and clicking on web links. people are appreciating the efforts his jersey is number 99 now there is an online position to rename highway 99 the jj watt parkway. thousands of people who lost their cell phones and computers during harvey lost sentimental photos and videos as well. now a bay area data recovery
company is helping those victims. the company drive savers says it will recover data from devices that were damaged in the storm for free. handling the devices is risky because the water is contaminated but it is a risk they are willing to take to help hurricane harvey victims get back photos and videos that would have otherwise been lost. >> our hearts go out to those going through this. it will be many months or years to get through and we hope to help.>> data recovery services usually cost several thousand but anyone who was affected by hurricane harvey will get the help for free. >> animal rescue groups are helping out in the aftermath of harvey. a private plane carrying 69 dogs and cats from a shelter in austin arrived in oakland last night. workers offered to take animals
from austin before the hurricane hit to free up space for pets displaced by harvey. >> by bringing in these animals and finding them homes those shelters can rescue those animals and hopefully ultimately reunite them with their family. >> dogs and cats are getting checked out medically fed and checked in. a second seismic shock, coming up the investigation into north korea's most powerful nuclear test so far and the latest from the emergency meeting being held at the un security council. a nationwide demonstration tomorrow is labor day we will tell you what is happening in the bay area. and i'm an arborist with i'pg&e in the sierras. the drought in california has killed trees on a massive scale.
any of those trees that fail into power lines could cause a wildfire or a power outage. public safety is the main goal of our program. that's why we're out removing these hundreds of thousands of hazard trees. having tools and technology gives us a huge edge to identify hazard trees. my hope is that the work we're performing allows that these forests can be sustained and enjoyed by the community in the future. together, we're building a better california.
having today union groups in the bay area will take part in a nationwide demonstration to mark labor day, the rally in support of raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. in california the minimum wage is $10.50 it will increase to $15 by the year 2022, there are rallies at various locations including alameda county. one labor union demonstration begins at a mcdonald's in oakland ending near city hall, this brings us to the question of the day to you support a $15 minimum wage? vote on the kutv twitter page and leave us comments on facebook. governor brown has started a trip to focus on the economy and climate change. his first stop is alaska he will meet with climate experts and then he will be going to

also paid to jump to the front of other people's feeds. sal is over there and we have very little traffic on highway 24. >> that is right, this whole weekend has been maximum enforcement period which means more officers on the road looking at more drunk drivers and speeders anything unsafe. plan ahead if you are having a barbecue you know what i mean? put that in the back of your mind. this is highway 24 westbound getting up to the commute. plan ahead make sure everyone gets home safely. this is a look at four westbound near the toll plaza or the tunnel and then to the toll plaza, traffic continuing to look like we are not having a typical commute obviously most people with the day off. if you are trying to catch a flight at oakland airport the
roads are clear and the freeway is looking good. we do expect people to get back to the bay area later but not a huge traffic jam within the inner core of the bay area as we look at 280 it is light. all about the weather let's bring in steve paulson. >> there was a record on friday if you are from here you may not believe this. we will get right to it. the national weather service tweeted this out the distance from san francisco to those islands 32.3 miles, on friday the national marine sanctuary reported an all-time high of 89 degrees. isn't that amazing? >> usually it is 59 or 62 that would be warm. 89 degrees that is unbelievable. san francisco is one of six on friday also unbelievable.

focus today is the tropical clouds with the possibility of isolated showers. yesterday we had a microburst at 80 miles per hour in santa barbara. some of this is moving more toward monterey or the santa cruz mountains and you can see it is on its way to pebble. that will wake them up, the line just to the south to tropical moisture moving up 60s and 70s on the temperatures and even though peninsula, pacifica 65, moss beach 65, in all these last 30 years we have never seen somebody people at the beach when it is so hot. she also said she saw not that much trash in her whole life so she is going to do a beach cleanup today. so the good news there were some warm temperatures.
60s and 70s on these temperatures everyone is mild and warm due to the tropical clouds. this is really close but you can see just to the left a little bit. monsoon moisture today and tomorrow and then a weak system brushing all of this out and also changing the upper air direction to the southwest which will scour out the smoke and haze. 70s 80s and 90s but under mostly cloudy skies and then the fog returns. it will be patchy tonight and then it will fly in wednesday and thursday for a color pattern. >> also the rip tides at the beach just be careful. 7:48, some scary moments at the beach in santa barbara, coming up at 8:00 wild weekend whether catching people offguard showing you more of the damage
